  • I’ve used WP to create a WEB SITE. Problem is that my BLOG page looks just like a page also. I’m just learning about blogs so barely know what I’m doing. How do I configure the page, using Atahualpa theme, to get on my way? Any suggestions?

  • Can you please give URL to see what you mean.

    Sure. http://jonathanstein.org/whole-being-confidential-newsletter/

    At the moment, as you’ll see, it’s a blog waiting to happen. I plan to post newsletter articles, etc. there. But I don’t know how to initiate the functionality.

    Thanks for your help!

    Best,

    If you add some posts to the site(wp-admin –> Posts> Add New), it will appear in blog page.

    Can you tell if I have it configured properly so that it posts will show up in the “The WBC” page?

    And how do I activate a sidebar with archives. etc, only on that page?

    Again, gratitude…

    I can’t tell by seeing only front end.

    Blog page, usually set up by Settings –> Reading –> Posts page

    For some themes, there will be separate theme options..

    If your theme is widget ready, you can add widgets by going to themes–> widgets

    Thanks Gisha. I’ll see what I can do.

    Someone told me to go to Settings>Reading and create a static Home page and a static Articles page, and then select them in the dropdown box. I still don’t get this. It seems to me that it’s only possible to create ONE static page in Settings>Reading, and you can only select ONE Posting page from the drop down also.

    If I select Blog or Articles in the drop down, I end up getting an error message telling me that the page cannot be found.

    Any ideas on this one?
